We booked a trip through General Tours and Victoria Falls was part of it. We had a guide, Mike, who drove us and did the guided tour. He was great! The Falls were amazing and he gave us information during the tour. We also did the helicopter tour with "Flight of Angels" great views.

First, start with renting a nylon coat which is important during the visit. (That was funny; there are some booths across the road for renting such, we ask for two, got two, I tried to pay and got a reply "not now, pay when you return" asked if they need some info? A name? Anything? None, we found ourselves leaving... More

We saw the falls after a good year for ran and they are indescribably beautiful and awe-inspiring. A sight not to be missed. You walk along the length of the falls which is more than a kilometre through lovely rainforest. There are many viewpoints, but after a certain distance the rain caused by the falls is too hard to see... More

We were there in 2011 february and that was one of our life's most impressive experience. We visited only these falls in Zimbabwe, we came here only for this short program, which was with transfer cca 4 hrs. before our kenian vacation and safari, and that was a perfect start! At the entry we get yellow raincoats, and we wondered... More

Visit from Zambia and Zimbabwe sides. We walked from Vic Falls entrance to border and then across Zambezi river, past Zambian border to Royal Livingstone Hotel for lunch then back via National park on Zambia side. Amazing. Pack a raincoat!

The Falls are extremely impressive. A must see when in Victoria Falls. Be warned you do get quite wet. Only negative was the amount of locals trying to sell stuff near entrance.

Victoria Falls is truly amazing, better than any man-made structure in the world. Entry fee is $20 for foreigners. There are plenty of walking routes you can take, some where you get wet and some where you don't. If travelling during high water though (March-June?) be prepared to feel some spray no matter which route you take. The trail to... More

A must see. The footpath offers perfect views along the route. Raincoat unnecessary except at Danger Point.

Simply stunning at any time of the year but your view varies dramatically, personally I would always go for the Zim side over the Zambia side

At the time of my visit (September) the waters were at a very low level but it did afford excellent views across to the Zambia side where the waters actually fall and without the need to protect your camera from spray in quite the same way as you would need to do in, say, March. Also, unlike the Zambian side,... More
